If the engine is cold, fill to the cold level. If it's hot, fill to the hot level.

How do I let the old anti freezer out of a 1995 Chevy Lumina?

Very simple locate the radiator on the car and at the bottom/underneath of the car there will be a drain plug either on the far left or far right of the car's radiator. Just unscrew it and catch the old antifreeze and dispose of it appropriately. Once drained, simply refill the radiator and let it burp a few times then put the cap back on and continue to fill the overflow reservoir to full cold level line. Then start the car and let it run for about 10-15mins continually watching/filling the reservoir until the car is warm and it doesn't seem to be removing any more antifreeze from the reservoir. FINALLY let the car cool completely about an hour or so. And check the coolant one last time, the overflow reservoir that is, make sure it is filled to the full cold level line. NOTE: BE SURE NOT TO OVERFILL OR IT MAY LEAK OUT WHILE CAR IS RUNNING. Hope this helps

My 2008 xterra's coolant res. doesnt specifically say "hot" or "cold" levels to fill it to. Is the max level line on the res for a hot radiator, or a cold radiator? Not sure if Im low on coolant? When...

the lower line is cold level and the upper is the hot level
doesn't matter which you fill too because if you cold fill to hot line , the excess will be pushed out the over flow line

Heater on 2004 ford tauras stopped getting hot suddenly

check coolant level first and make sure no air trapped in system. Ask shop to use evac/fill equipment to purge air.

cold engine - remove cap & fill radiator with 50/50 mix antifreeze/water. install cap.

fill reservoir 3/4 full. run engine until upper rad hose is hot. let cool and see if it sucks coolant from reservoir. Keep res 3/4 full. repeat.

I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado pickup, and the heater will not blow hot air. I replaced the thermostat, and nothing changed. The radiator was flushed and filled in the last two months as well. I have all...

once truck is warm check both heater core hoses to make sure they are both warm if not then check the cold water valve could be stuck shut not allowing coolant to travel in to heater core.

How much coolant should I put in my 1998 chevy cavalier 2.2 liter?

First, premix coolant with water to get a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water then just fill your radiator to full and your coolant recovery tank up to the full cold mark (indicator on side of tank) run your car let it reach operating tempature, turn it off let it cool and recheck levels and reservice if necessary. You wouldn't need more than 1 or 1 1/2 gallons of coolant if you premix. Hope that helps.

Adding antifreeze to 2003 dodge dakota sxt

normaly you add to the plastic res , but lets make sure its full , so when it is cold the engine then open the radiator cap the metal one slowly and first top it off then close cap all the way and fill plastic res to the cold fill line. but usualy you just make sure the plastic tank is either full to the hot line or cold line , which is when the engine is hot or cold. but it is also good to check both .

Changing my antifreeze

i guess the easiest way is to take the bottom radiator hose off when the engine is cold put a hose in the top of the radiator flush any dirty water out then reconnect the hose put the right amount of anti-freeze in (will tell you on the bottle) fill the radiator with water but also have a hose or bucket of water handy because the water level will drop when the motor gets hot when this happens just fill with water but don't waste time

How do i flush a radiator

go to auto parts store and get a flush kit,

cut and insert the "T" from the flush kit on the heater hose outlet or inlet.
make sure you are cutting into the heater hose coming out of the firewall heater area and not a large vacuum line.
if your not sure ask a mechanic.

connect the kits anti syphon to water hose and connect to the T you have installed ,
open the radiator , and flush very slow if engine is hot , or wait till engine is cool as a very cold flush can damage the engine.
